Leather sheepskin gloves are a traditional type of glove that is very popular for cold winter conditions because they provide the maximum amount of warmth and comfort. There is nothing warmer than real sheepskin gloves, with the woolly insides, and they are breathable too so they will not get sweaty like normal gloves might. They have been a popular material for sheepskin gloves leather outer for thousands of years, and there is no man made material that can compete with the natural properties of real sheepskin.
Sheepskin is hygroscopic, which means that it can absorb a third of its weight in water without becoming damp, which basically means that it is naturally waterproof. It is breathable, as we have mentioned before, which means that it will keep you warm when it is cold, but cool when it is warm too. This is how it usually manages the temperature of the sheep. Sheepskin is antibacterial, so you don’t have to worry about washing them regularly as you would with other gloves, plus they are great for the diabetic. It is a by product of the meat industry, and so it is a sustainable raw material that would otherwise go to waste.
